This is a feature request.
When making a list, it would be nice to have a "Links on page revision" source where I can select the article, then upon clicking "Make list", it would have me enter in a revision ID.
I realize I can do this by copying a revision to my sandbox and getting the links from that page. This proposal is to make that process more straightforward.
Impetus: The "popular pages" tool generates a list of most viewed pages in a wikiproject, but each month's new data is copied over the previous month's. I would like to do list compares between the current month's data and a previous month's which is in the previous revision.
- "Links on previous page revision" - Enter the page name and it shows links on the previous revision of the page.
- "Links on a previous page revision" - Enter the page name, click "Make list", then enter in a counting number meaning a revision from that many revisions back from the current one.
